The EECS Department welcomes Assistant Professor Natalie Enright Jerger of The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto.
Prof. Jerger will present a lecture on Friday January 11 entitled "Application-Aware Network-on-Chip Architectures"
Abstract: As transistors continue to scale according to Moore’s Law, efficient and scalable communication mechanisms will be required to realize the performance potential of many-core architectures. The increased demand for on-chip communication and the poor scaling of long global wires have made packet-switched networks-on-chip (NoC) a compelling choice for the communication backbone in these next-generation systems. Current NoC architectures are largely agnostic to the communication demands of the applications and the underlying architecture. In this talk, I will discuss research which explores increasing the functionality within the NoC to better match application demands. First, I will present a novel flow control technique that improves performance and buffer utilization in the face of short coherence control packets. Short control packets arise in NoCs due to abundant wiring resources. Second, I will present NoC support for routing collective communication.
